Give an Hour is hosting "A Celebration of Service," a two-day event, June 2–3, 2013, in New York City, to bring together colleagues from the military, government, corporate, educational, and nonprofit worlds to focus on service and train the next generation of mental health professionals while encouraging voluntarism, engaging communities, and creating awareness of the need for critical mental health services. We are pleased that many more will participate when our full-day conference, “Serving Those Who Serve: Training the Next Generation,” is live streamed to multiple college campuses across the country and then some materials from the conference are given a permanent home on the recently launched Give an Hour–Got Your 6 website for future viewing.

James Byrne (Lockheed Martin Corporation), Bruce Cohen (film producer), and Robert Gordon (APX Labs) are serving as Co-Chairs of the two-day gathering. See the full list of Honorary Committee Members.

Give an Hour is honored to present the Commitment to Service awards during the VIP Reception on Sunday evening to Colonel David Sutherland, U.S. Army Retired, for his extraordinary dedication to helping those who serve and Debbie Gregory, CEO of Military Connection.

Give an Hour, as the lead activation partner for the health pillar of the Got Your 6 Campaign, invites you to two days of inspiring events to be held in New York City, where it will inaugurate its program to educate 100,000 graduate students in mental health disciplines on the unique issues of veterans and military families.

Sponsorship Opportunities

While there are countless admirable causes serving the needs of the military men and women and veterans who have selflessly served our country, Give an Hour is unique in its mission of providing free mental health services not only to those who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan but also to their extended families and loved ones, including unmarried partners and their communities. We are also unique in scope: we are a national organization with a network that includes more than 6,700 licensed mental health professionals, providing free counseling services (for as long as it is needed) in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and Guam.
